Meet Doug, my pet squirrel.
Recently, I installed a bird feeder outside my breakfast window and have loved seeing all the colorful birds flying back and forth between the feeder and the trees. We've had bright red cardinals, doves, finches. Every time I see them flying to it and discovering their meal waiting, I can't help but the think of the verse above and be reminded that I too don't need to worry. Just as God always provides for the birds, He consistently shows me how much He provides in my life as well.
And now... I have a squirrel. Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted a pet squirrel. I know I know, I've heard they are kind of mean and they don't make good pets, but they are just so darn cute. The way I hung the bird feeder, I was like, there is no way a squirrel can access it. It literally hangs on a chain on the gutter above. Not near a tree, just hanging. But yet, those tricky little squirrels always find a way.
One morning, I looked out and, there was a squirrel munching on the bird seed. I had no idea how he got there, and it had been racking my brain how he accomplished such a task. Then recently, I caught the attempt in action. Here's a few videos documenting from our new YouTube channel of his journey to the bird seed!
